  1. I know I have a couple around here somewhere....
  2. I am not aware of anyone mounting 6G pipes on an 8G bike, though I have seen many 5G high mounts (Staintune and others) mounted on the 8G. I dont think the undertail on the 8G would support the weight of hanging the 6G exhaust from it.
  3. Wow, just dropped in to catch up between flights and you guys have been very busy. The clever bung fitting references and not being a pain in Wades butt are only exceeded by the work actually accomplished. I can hardly wait, hope to get one installed before the Spring Memorial ride.
  4. Wow, thank you guys for bringing this to fruition! It seemed to be the old 80/10 rule, where the last 10% never gets done - until now. i will need five sets. 1. 5th gen with PC2 and Wolf exhaust, can upgrade the fuel management with the new O2 bungs and would probably forward my midpipe to be expanded for fit by Wade. 2. 5th gen engine in 6th gen chassis with 2007 body (35th anniversary edition with 8th gen front forks and swinger) PCV with Staintune 6th gen exhaust. 3. 6th gen with Torocharger, will need 8th gen front downpipes to add additional 8th gen lower rad for engine temp control, Rapid Bike fuel management and Staintune for 6g 4. 5th gen track bike in 6g chassis - will need 8th gen front downpipes for removal of all sidemount rads for track day exploration of the envelope. Rapid bike and some can TBD...toying with paring front and rears only to run under tail exit for rear and under mount exit for front cylinders ala RC211V 5. 6th gen with rapid bike controller and stock exhaust. Let me know how to forward the deposit. Shaping up up to the a great ‘19 !!!! Keith
  5. In this regard, the 8G exhaust actually mirrors the RC30/45 exhaust. They also splayed out to the side a bit to allow for fitment of a front low mount rad. I am adopting something similar for the track bike under construction.
  6. Can the lost top end power be regained by increasing the diameter of the tubing? NOT asking for a friend. 😉 I didn't see any post on the mods you made to the RC45 exhaust with your big bore VFR800.
  7. I know this is a dormant thread but it is the closest I could find to my question. I am building a track bike and looking at track bike displays, can anyone confirm that the 8th gen is canbus compatible? I am thinking to start with an 8g harness and clip away what I don't need to wire in either http://www.xtracing.com/en/gpxzed/index.php or http://aimsports.com/en/products/solo2-solo2dl/index.htm and thinking that the Solo 2 would be better if connecting via canbus.
  8. Hi CornerCarver, Thank you for your donation of 100.00 USD. We look forward to improving the forums with your donation. Thanks VFRDiscussion
  9. That doesn't seem like it would cause that big a discrepancy in operating temps. Was the new water pump the same as the old? no "improvements" inside...?
  10. And....air bubble? Silicone hose clamps loosening themselves? New 'stat good bad or indifferent? Low coolant or adequate?
  11. The Carver Clan just pullover into Casa de Carver and unloaded the bikes from the trailer, 21 hours after we left yesterday. Pics to follow.
  12. I like the photo of the 6G staring down the 50’s tech bike without even a hint of a “Vtec, YO!” smirk.....
  13. Very interested in your VFR1200, can you send me more detailed pics?

     

    Thanks,


    Keith
